His limit is $5k, and he needs two tv's at the end of it. $5k for a ZT is pretty stupid too...

He was thinking two sharps, one for man cave and one for living room, but since he games he wants my VT50 for man cave. Then he just spends another $2500 on another 70".

You can get a used VT50 calibrated already for <2500. If he ponies up to around 3K he can get the Vt60 used and possibly calibrated.

I don't agree that spending 5k on a tv you will use for a long time in your man cave is stupid when there aren't any alternatives in a 65inch size for 5k that can best it at the moment. Stupid is buying anything you can't afford.

He knows all of that. Finding a plasma is not as easy as just going out and getting one when you want too. Plus you have to consider hours and other things. He has been looking but opted to spend 1/2 on the Sharp, and hold the other 1/2 until his house is built in hopes he would find a VT for sale around here. The reason he wants to trade for my VT is that it is only 14 months old, has almost 2 years warranty left, plus he knows how I treat my gear. And its calibrated. If he can find a second he would buy it, if not he'd get a second 70".

As far as a $5k ZT, we will just disagree because it aint my money so I dont care. The reliability of these sets has not been exactly peachy the last few years, so there is no way in hell Id drop $5k on something that is not made anymore from a company leaving the tv business, in hopes it lasts 3-5 years. On top of that, there is a 55" LG OLED for $4200.

There's still the easy way to get a plasma - amazon, 2 day shipping. If he'd like brand new, he may be interested in the F8500 for about 3k and knowing he can return it to reputable dealers still- its only a hair away in performance to a VT50 for nighttime viewing and of course he can still crank brightness and worry less about IR since it seems to suffer less from it.
